Words of wisdom:

And of course the right to choose your own legal representation is also critical in our legal system. But that won't stop the right-wing nutters from acting like little children.

The following are pictures worth a thousand words:

Okay, that's enough minimalism from me for now. Hope you enjoyed it...

Yeah, the handful of charters that do cater to mostly poor children are "heart strings" schools: The ones that show up in the news to forward the false narrative it's about helping poor people. The reality is, these schools are much more segregated than public schools in general, and without a more vigorous program of oversight, that will get worse as time goes by.

There you go, folks. Even the insane gun fetishists at Grass Roots NC view that hunt & fish amendment as a useless political ploy. Stopped clocks and all that...

Make sure you have a barf bag handy:

Harris’ preaching frequently references Ephesians 5:22 in the Bible, which says, “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord” and the 25th verse, which says, “Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it.”

In one sermon from Feb. 3, 2013, he said the majority of marital problems could be linked to couples not following that guidance.

“Many marriages could save beaucoups of marriage counseling money if they would just understand; husbands love your wives even as Christ loved the church. Wives submit yourselves unto your own husbands as unto the Lord,” he said in the sermon.

Let me fix that for you: "Many marriages would be much better served by going to a legitimate, qualified counselor than by studying the Bible more closely and listening to a windbag false prophet."

On that nauseating note, here's your Onion:

That's a true story, right there.
